Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention

Lead is a toxic metal used in some paints made before 1978. Children are exposed to lead when older buildings are in poor condition. Today, childhood lead poisoning affects 310,000 children in the U.S. six years old and younger. A simple blood test can help prevent damage caused by lead poisoning.
